Jessica, founded by Jessica Vartoughian, is available worldwide in 60 countries. The UK’s arm, led by Susan Gerrard of Gerrard International, has been Jessica’s most successful market since launching in 1992. When asked about this unique long-term partnership, Jessica says: ‘It wasn’t until I met Susan Gerrard, herself a manicurist, that I knew I found someone who fully embraced my system. We shared a vision.’ Susan set up the Natural Nail Company which then became Gerrard International. ‘Her passion, excitement and commitment was the reason I knew we would be successful.’
